AirAsia Philippines has successfully reopened its Kaohsiung, Taiwan route in time for the l Lunar New Year festivities. The inaugural flight on 7 January which took off at the NAIA Terminal 3 was greatly received by travelers as the flight crew welcomed them with exciting treats.
AirAsia Philippines CEO Ricky Isla shares: “Our return to Kaohsiung signals an auspicious and positive welcome to the year of the Rabbit. Before the pandemic, this route and Manila-Taipei had immensely contributed to our growth with its consistently high traffic demand, especially among leisure travelers and overseas Filipino workers who are always searching for the best value deals. We look forward to reopening more international routes and air travel in the Eastern Region of Asia.”
